Bulgaria: Commission on Protection of Competition

08 August 2013

The Commission on Protection of Competition is an independent, specialised state body whose main goal is to ensure the protection and promotion of competition and free economic initiative, including by vigilance on the lawful spending of public resources through public procurement and concession awarding procedures. The priorities in the Commission’s work are underpinned by the overall economic development objectives laid down by the Bulgarian government and the Bulgarian National Assembly, as well as by its obligation to directly apply the European competition acquis.
